[Beauty] DRx Trichology Journey

I have just started a new treatment with DRx. Other than the skin doctor, I am also doing tricho with them.

I have very very thin hair since young and of course, I want to like all the other girl on the street. I want thick, shiny black hair.

As I grow up, I began to realise that it may or may not be genetic (although my dad has thin hair as well). The cause of this problem could be due to my diet. I stopped eating meat since lower secondary school days because I hate the taste of it and I couldn't bear to see the animals dying.

Protein is an important molecule for hair growth and the lack of protein could cause hair loss or hair thinning. Red meat like beef or pork would be a great source of protein.

Due to the lack of protein in me, I could either face very slow hair growth or hair thinning (on top of genetics if any).

I wash my hair EVERYDAY. I can't stand not washing it for a single day.

So trust me when I said I got a shocked when I look at the pictures that were taken from my scalp.

There were so much debris and dead skin on the hair follicles!! It was like all over the scalp!!

To be honest, you can't get them all off in one visit, but DRx managed to get ride of at least 75% of them for me.

As this was my first visit, the objective was to clean the scalp as much as possible. Clean scalp can enable to follicles to breath properly and stimulate hair growth.

The first step was to soften the dead skin cells and oil plug by massaging some oil based product before steaming the scalp for a good 20 minutes.

Since it was 20 minutes, I made used of the time to take some photos with the big balloon on my head.

Followed by washing and blow dry.

Purifying serum was also applied to nourish the hair follicles and feed it with nutrients.

Lastly, the laser, which can promotes hair growth. I think I look like some policewoman with this thing on my head.

And do you know how DRx ends it off? They sure know how to make you feel pampered!
They curled my hair for me with their curler. Almost everyone who had done tricho with them raved about this curler!

You can also use it as a brush because it keeps the hair soft and shiny after brushing. No joke. They sell this curler too. Do pop by and enquire more.

Look at the curl. So bouncy and nice! I can never achiever such curls myself.

Had always loved curled hair. Really. But straight hair is easily to maintain, which is always why I had never really visit a salon and have them curled before.

So now you know, DRx not only take care of the face, they take care of the hair as well.
